Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business is a tool created by Kaspersky to protect businesses following the WannaCry ransomware outbreak.
Upon launch, you can run it as an administrator or specify your user account details. For the most part, it is a set it and forget it application. However, there are a few settings.
You can enable system tracing, uncheck self-defense, and change your proxy server. Another tab allows you to block applications or make any application a trusted app. These settings can easily be reversed.
Live statistics are available showing the number of people connected, threats neutralized, whitelisted and blacklisted objects and more.
The app is free, but there is a button to get premium protection.While this might fall under Ad-Supported or even Freemium, we let this one ride as freeware because it’s fully functional.
Hopefully, you’ve already patched your systems against the WannaCry ransomware but if you’re running an unsupported operating system including Windows XP or Server 2003, then Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business could save you a lot of aggravation if this outbreak repeats. It’s not uncommon for modified variants to make the rounds down the road. Kaspersky Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business will have you covered.
